Airport solution provider ADB SAFEGATE has introduced a new digital system for scheduling and tracking of airside maintenance actions.

The Airside Location-based Inspection and Service solution (ALIS) will replace manual, paper-based systems and eliminate inefficiencies caused by human error, said the company.

“ALIS is giving our customers increased visibility of airside assets, helping them plan and schedule preventive maintenance, or undertake corrective maintenance more quickly,” said Christian Onselaere, CEO, ADB SAFEGATE.

“ALIS is a key component of our Airfield+ service offering that combines exclusive tools with our extensive knowledge to reduce downtime, increase availability and ensure smooth operations for our customers.”

ALIS is already in use at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport to track its maintenance data on its runway 1 – specifically, the torqueing of the airport’s in-pavement lights –  and will soon be used on all six runways.

The system is also being used at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, Birmingham Airport in the UK and Qatar’s Hamad International Airport, while projects are just getting started at Boston Logan International Airport, Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport and Heathrow Airport.
